    New look for the summer...

    I was getting tired of the same old S3 and conforming to the norm, so I've decided on a slightly different look for the summer.


    Before


    Now





    There's no doubt a few of you that aren't going to like it, but hey, its not your car.

    Hadn't seen that till you mentioned it. I've been toying with this idea for nearly a year now. Just needed to get all the bits together.

    matt black or satin?

    So youve finally decided to go for the look you were talking about ages ago, looks as good as it did in the original photoshops. Looks sweet.
    What wheels are they?

    Cheers, it's not too far from the original concept.



    I think that wheels look smaller when they're black, so I got some 19" MTM bimoto's instead of powdercoating the RS4's. I couldn't do another Inters with CH's. You started something that became VERY popular!

    Whats the weight of the MTM's like compared to the BBS's? Hows the change to 19's affected the handling?

    Are those R888's wrapped round the MTM's?

    Looks like a track car, I like it!!!

    Too many cars on this board get mollycoddled and babied instead of being driven properly.

    Even if you don't drive it to its limits, at least it 'looks' like it does.

    10/10.

    Im guna cry... I only just posted a thread the other day about doing that.... looks great with the colour of your car... still not sure if it will suit my silver a3 though. Im currently this minute waiting for the paint too dry on one of my RS4's b4 i apply the clear coat. Did you use paint or powder coat. Im toying with the idea of powder coat as it will give an nice glos finish and be hard wearing. Down side is it woundnt be as easy too repair if damaged.

    The MTMs are about 3kg's heavier each. Not sure how the handling will be affected as one of the bolts threaded the hub when I took it out - feckin tyre fitters overtightening things.

    And yes, R888s.

    Heh, heh. Don't worry, this one gets driven properly.


    Did you use paint or powder coat.
    Powder coat. I wouldn't consider painting as you'd need proper high temp paint and the finish is never as good. If you kerb a powder coated wheel, its the same as kerbing any other alloy wheel. Damage is damage.

    You can, but they were going to be 80 more expensive - each! It only cost 45 to have it done, so it was a no-brainer.

    Be interestling to see about handling on the road with the 19's, I only use 18's on the track now as the ride is so bad on UK roads.

    I look forward to your opinions on the handling with the 19's, and how the R888's compare to the Yoko Parada's, once you get it all sorted mate.

    who did your powder coating mate? somewhere in aberdeen? i've have had a few paintshop files with my 19"s in anthracite kicking around for way too long! might take the plunge 'for the summer'.... think that'll make it easier to justify to the 'boss'

    i'm waiting for the results of a speed camera incident so might be driving nothing!....

    It sure does. But not with you behind the wheel, eh Chris?

    I wouldn't have thought the journey from your Des Res to the local wine bar justified 888s...I may be wrong though.

    How long will it be before you have a fine ring of arch liner stuck to the side of the tyres?


    The car looks sweet...BTW!

    Guys, thanks for the PM's but the CH's aren't for sale.

    Powdercoating was done by a company called PPS in Inverurie.

    Yeah, it was a normal plate back then. Impulse buy on ebay, much cheapness.

    Initial thoughts are good. A lot more tyre noise at speed, but the turn in bite is incredible. I'll be getting some A048Rs for the CH's soon so that'll be another set to compare. Don't think wither will last as long as the Paradas.

    Well, you've only seen me in it when I've been following you. So, I've never been able drive it that hard or I'd have been running up the back of you

    I wouldn't have thought the journey from your Des Res to the local wine bar justified 888s...I may be wrong though.
    New des res, and its out of town so I think the 888s will get a bit of usage. Besides, where are these wine bars you keep mentioning in Aberdeen????


    How long will it be before you have a fine ring of arch liner stuck to the side of the tyres?
    Er, that took less than 5 miles. The front spacers will be coming off.

    Don't forget that there is usually hidden dangers in following you too closely - cow ****, stones, bits of exhausts, all flying fron the back of your car.


    Did you find something?

    Yep, Lynne of Skene. Second house I bid on, and not a penny over value. Very very odd for Aberdeen.

    Hmmmm, and I always thought you preferred the homme bars.
